Niagara Fruit
All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids fungicidal baths and defuzzing of peaches. The size of the fruit may be bigger or smaller as well.

Here is the Niagara Fruit we have From Warner's Farms this week:
Juices! Fresh Apple Pear Cider as well as Preserved Cranberry-Grape and Concord (in 'beverages' under 'pantry')
Quince - a fruit that is high in pectin and best stewed with apples or in pie or made into jam (the original marmalade)
Cranberries - Fresh from Upper Canada Cranberries in Ottawa (not from within 100 miles)
Pears: Flemish Beauty, Harrow Delight, Bartlett, Bosc, D'Anjou and HW623
Plums: German Prune Plums (smaller and sweeter than the Italian prune plums)
Grapes: Sovereign Coronation (blue, virtually seedless) are getting sweeter and sweeter!
Tree Nuts: Chestnuts are still available!
Crabapples too!
